Petition to Harry Reid — Sign now!

April 6, 2009

Dear NAGR supporter:

“There are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons.”

Barack Obama’s anti-gun Attorney General Eric Holder didn’t exactly surprise gun owners when he came clean about his plans to ram through a new “Assault Weapons” ban into law.

But today, with the White House and Congress chock full of anti-gunners, Barack Obama and his anti-gun Attorney General don’t just want the “same old ban.”

They want a PERMANENT ban expanded to include almost any semi-automatic firearm in America!

That’s why it’s vital you sign the online petition we’ve prepared for our members, which demands that Senator Harry Reid refuse to allow so much as a hearing on the “Assault Weapons” Ban — TODAY!

You see, an “assault weapon” could be virtually any gun.

The anti-gun politicians just like the term “assault weapons” because it sounds “scary.”

And some people get them confused with fully automatic select-fire “machine guns” — guns that have been tightly controlled since 1934.

So Sarah Brady and the gun grabbers think they’ve got it made.  They believe all they have to do is call a gun an “assault weapon” to demonize it, and then pass a ban.

That’s why we must fight back NOW!

The only good news in this situation is that we DO have a real chance of stopping this bill. 

You see, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is THE KEY to defeating any new “Assault Weapons” Ban. 

All he has to do is REFUSE to allow any Senate action on the bill, and no ban will get passed.

He’s already said he plans on voting against a new ban “if it comes up for a vote.”

Great, but not good enough, Harry.

 That’s why you and I need to make sure Senator Harry Reid knows that if he allows the ban to have so much as a hearing, he will lose his seat.

And believe me: That’s a threat Senator Reid will take seriously.

He’s already disliked by a majority of Nevadans — and insiders are calling Senator Reid the most vulnerable Democrat in the Senate.

If Senator Reid crosses gun owners, he’s political dead meat — plain and simple.  It’s our job to make sure he knows it.

But remember, Senator Reid doesn’t need our votes to win reelection — he needs the votes of folks in Nevada.

So — in addition to your signed petition — you and I must do everything we can to mobilize Second Amendment supporters in Nevada.

And that’s good news!

 Firstly, Nevada is one of the most pro-gun states in the country.

And secondly, this program will give you and me an incredible “bang for our buck.”

Instead of mobilizing folks all over the country to try and get 41 votes to filibuster the gun grabbers’ schemes, we can concentrate all our firepower in ONE state.

And Nevada just happens to be one of the least populated states in the country — their TOTAL population is just under 2.5 million.

That means the National Association for Gun Rights can run the kind of no-nonsense, no-compromise grassroots effort that will have Senator Reid running for the hills.

 But of course, even a targeted statewide program like this won’t be cheap.

So in addition to your petition , I hope I can count on your financial support as well.

With your generous contribution, we’ll focus our resources on running a full-scale campaign to mobilize Nevada gun owners, including:

  • Sending out three massive statewide mailings, urging Nevada gun owners to contact Senator Reid and express their opposition to the ban.
  • Writing hard-hitting guest editorials for every daily and weekly newspaper in Nevada to explain to Nevadans that Senator Reid has the power to single-handedly stop any new “Assault Weapons” Ban.
  • Training in-state pro-gun activists to write letters to the editor, work the talk-radio shows, talk to the press and hand out flyers at EVERY ONE of Senator Reid’s in-state events.
  • Putting up anti-BAN billboards within eyesight of EVERY one of Senator Reid’s Nevada offices, demanding that Senator Reid refuse to allow so much as a hearing on the ban.
  • Running statewide newspaper, radio and TV ads to show Senator Reid we really mean business.

The truth of the matter is, this simple statewide program in Nevada has the potential to be the most important program ANY gun rights group runs this year.

 And if we can stop the so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban from passing, we just may be able to stop anything the gun control crowd throws our way.

But without an IMMEDIATE influx of funds, we may not be able to take advantage of this opportunity.

And if we don’t, a new, permanent “Assault Weapons” Ban WILL become law.

I’m sure, like me, you can hardly stomach that thought.

That’s why, in addition to your signed petition to Senator Reid, I also hope you’ll agree to make a generous contribution of $100 or $200 to the National Association for Gun Rights.  Click here to contribute.

Believe me, I know that’s a lot, but we have an opportunity here to make a major difference.

If you can’t afford $100, please consider contributing $75 or $50 to the cause.

Listen: If you and I show Senator Reid that he could lose his seat if he allows action on any new gun ban, we can win.  It’s that simple.

So please sign and the online petition, and rush me your most generous contribution of $200, $100, or $50 TODAY.


Dudley Brown
Executive Director

P.S. We need to make sure Senator Harry Reid knows you and I — and tens of thousands of Nevadans — aren’t going to let him get away with allowing a new, permanent “Assault Weapons” Ban to pass.

So please sign NAGR’s online petition to Harry Reid demanding that he refuse to allow so much as a hearing on the “Assault Weapons” Ban TODAY!

And in addition to your signed petition, please send a generous contribution of $200, $100, or $50 — or whatever you can afford — TODAY! Click here to contribute.

2nd Amendment Politics

Obama Lied to Gun Owners, Says CCRKBA; Attack Plan Revealed by Holder



BELLEVUE, WA As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama deliberately and repeatedly lied to America’s 90 million gun owners across the country when he insisted that he would not try to take away anyone’s firearms, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, reacting to yesterday’s remarks by Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder that the president will seek to reinstate the ban on semi-automatic firearms, said Obama knew he was lying to the nation because his own website touted his plan to revive the gun ban and make it permanent.

We warned America that Obama’s support for the Second Amendment was empty rhetoric, he stated, and now Holder’s disclosure has confirmed it. Obama was lying, and now gun rights may be dying.

Several times on the campaign trail, Obama told voters I’m not going to take your guns away. He said it at rallies in Duryea, Pennsylvania and in Boise, Idaho. He also told a news conference that Lawful gun owners have nothing to fear…I think people can take me at my word.

Right now, said Gottlieb, I wouldn t take Obama’s word if he said it rains a lot in Seattle. Apparently, law-abiding gun owners have nothing to fear unless they own sport-utility rifles, semiautomatic shotguns, handguns and any other firearm that Obama and his anti-gun attorney general don t like.

Thanks to Eric Holder, who has been far more honest than his boss about his anti-gun philosophy, it is now clear that the new president doesn’t support the Second Amendment at all, he observed. American gun owners should remind Democrats in Congress that the Second Amendment means what it says, especially when the president doesn’t.

These Dogs Don’t Hunt: The Democrats’ War on Guns

This book is a must read for every gun owner concerned about the election results.

[Fcalerts-list] Take Action Now!

Please reply to feedback [at]
using appropriate email format. 

  1. All is Not Hopeless: There are actions you can be taking now to build up the levy and stem the flood.
  2. Oppose Confirmation of Eric Holder to Attorney General!
  3. Celebrate Bill of Rights Day – Support the Second Amendment Book Bomb!
  4. Help the Firearms Coalition by educating yourself and others.
  5. Latest “Knox Report” newsletter is in the Mail.
  6. All is Not Hopeless!
      The record gun and ammo sales statistics since the election and the chatter on the various internet forums I monitor tell me that people are worried and want to take some action, but there doesn’t appear to be much that they can do except prepare for the worst.  Even though the political landscape has shifted dramatically and the politicians are making stupid moves which are going to do more long-term harm to our economy and do threaten our future, the good news is that the worst is yet to come. If we can see ti coming, we can take action to prevent it.  There are things that you can be doing right now to ensure a brighter future.  Preparing for the worst is prudent, but it is not prudent to sit in the boat waiting for the flood when you could be busy reinforcing the levy to avoid the flood altogether.
      The Brady Bunch and their pals are doing their best to convince the politicians and the public that “the gun lobby is dead.” The most important thing we can do right now is let the politicians and the rest of the nation know that the news of our demise has been greatly exaggerated. Just because there was no candidate for President that Gun Voters could rally to doesn’t mean that Americans no longer care about our rights.  We need to let Washington know that in no uncertain terms. How do we do that?  Read on.
  7. Oppose Confirmation of Eric Holder to Attorney General!
      The best way to prove we’re not dead is to take on a fight in Congress and win – or at least make a good showing.  The fight that is currently available – and it is a fight worth fighting – is the nomination of Eric Holder to the position of Attorney General.  Holder is a radical opponent of the Second Amendment and should be rejected for the incredibly powerful office of the AG. 
      The Firearms Coalition is calling on all supporters of the Second Amendment to declare their opposition to, and actively oppose Holder’s confirmation.  Clubs and grassroots organizations are being invited to sign on to a letter of opposition to Holder as a first step.
      Learn more about Holder and efforts to block his confirmation at
  8. Celebrate Bill of Rights Day – Support the Second Amendment Book Bomb!
      Gun buyers have been sending a message with the record purchases of guns and ammunition since the election, now we have the opportunity to expand on that message by pushing Steve Halbrook’s new book, “The Founders™ Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms” to the top of the best sellers lists.  It is important that activists be well versed in the fundamentals of the Second Amendment and Steve’s new book is a great way to establish a firm foundation. 
      The concept of a “Book Bomb” is to spread the word among supporters who are likely to want to purchase the book to all make their purchases at about the same time.  This sales spike pushes the book to the tops of the charts where it is seen by a wider audience perpetuating more sales and maintaining the book high on the best seller lists.
      To learn more about this effort, go to and be sure to read about the related special offer from The Firearms Coalition below.
  9. Help the Firearms Coalition by Educating Yourself and Others.
      Since “Knowledge is Power,” The Firearms Coalition wants to help all of our friends become as knowledgeable and powerful as possible.  That’s why we are offering two great books and one great video DVD as premiums for donations to our efforts.  We are doing our part to support the “Book Bomb” program described above by purchasing a number of copies of Steve Halbrook’s book, “The Founders™ Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms” and offering them to our supporters.  We are also offering copies of David Hardy’s excellent documentary film, In Search of the Second Amendment and the comprehensive book, “The Heller Case; Gun Rights Affirmed” by Alan Korwin and Dave Kopel.
      Contributors of $50 or more may select any one of these great titles and for a contribution of $100 or more, we’ll send you all three.  And as an added bonus, if you are not a current subscriber to our bi-monthly newsletter, we’ll throw in a year’s subscription for free.
      Of course you can acquire these great resources for less money elsewhere, but by getting them from The Firearms Coalition you are also helping to support our efforts to protect your rights.
      To take advantage of this offer, send your contribution of $50 or more to:
    The Firearms Coalition
    Po Box 3313
    Manassas, VA  20108

Be sure to indicate your preference of either
“The Founders™ Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms” by Stephen Halbrook
“The Heller Case; Gun Rights Affirmed” by Alan Korwin and Dave Kopel
the video DVD, In Search of the Second Amendment by David Hardy
or all three for a donation of $100 or more!
